January Goals Revisited…

Have Neal put away the patio furniture – Thanks babe!
Begin my weight lifting routine – Yes! I started lifting weights at the beginning of the month and just began a new program last week
Workout at least 4 times a week (cardio and/or weight lifting) – Yes! I really enjoyed my workouts in January
Track every single thing I eat, before I eat it – Preparing all of my meals on Sunday has helped a lot!
Switch WW meetings – Yes! I switched to Saturdays, which didn’t work out, so now I’m attending WW at Work meetings
Meal prep on Sundays – Yes! And I’m really enjoying it!
Pack my bags for work the night before – Yes!
Have Magnolia’s daycare bags packed the night before – Yes!
Go to bed by 10PM each night – Yes!
